Killer robot geisha, armed with an array of weaponry, such as various blades, missiles, flesh melting breast milk and (at least in the case of one of them) the ability to turn into some kind of fucked up tracked vehicle from the waist down. A giant shiro robot that smacks buildings and makes the buildings bleed. Cheesy special effects and even cheesier music. Handicap gun. Fried shrimp!
Yes, its the trailer for RoboGeisha, the latest offering from writer-director Noboru Iguchi (The Machine Girl) and special effects whizz Yoshihiro Nishimura (the director of Tokyo Gore Police).
And by the looks of this trailer, the movie comes replete with many of the trademarks (inordinate amounts of gore, over the top special effects and, ahem, "unconventional" weapon placement) associated with these two Japanese film reprobates.
Looks to me like this film will be a continuation of the gloriously irreverent randomness these two have made a name for themselves for over the past few years.
But arguably not a very suitable movie for a first date.
Warning: TRAILER NSFW
